Mental Illness, Discrimination and the Law
Legislative action is indispensable in the fight to combat the discrimination, abuse and social injustice experienced across the world by people with mental health problems. This book is intended to assist and speed up legislative and policy reform. It presents a range of conceptual and empirical material which documents the role that legislative ctions – whether applying internationally, regionally, at country level, or to devolved regions within countries – can play in combating the discrimination and abuse experienced by people with mental health problems.
At the same time, we emphasise that such reform will effect changes ‘on the ground’ only if it is buttressed by enforcement mechanisms as well as societal and discursive shifts in how people with mental health problems are perceived and treated by other members of society.
